Abstract:

No high level problem oriented computer language is available to study and solve continuous systems characterized by partial differential equations furthermore, conventional methods to handle such problems on a computer are very time consuming. Therefore, two main goals are accomplished 1 a convenient, easy to learn and to use, high level problem oriented language to solve and study partial differential equation problems is designed and 2 a feasible translator for the language is designed, and a preliminary version of it is constructed for a significant portion of the language. The translator is written in preprocessor PL1 and translates from PDEL into PL1. The PL1 program generated is then processed like any other PL1 program. The implemented PDEL is as much on line as standard PL1. The translator is machine independent and can be used in any machine with a standard PL1 compiler. The main goal of the PDEL language and translator is to ease and speed up the total problem solving time, mainly by significantly reducing the programming effort - usually the largest portion of total problem solving time.
